Brought to you by the talented Emily Kintigh, this draft stopper will keep your abode warm during the cold seasons.

The pattern comes in a single size and after stuffing will measure approximately 2.75 inches high and 39 inches long. That is 7 cm in height and 99 cm in length if you prefer metric units.

The draft stopper pattern also includes charts for 3 color stripes and 2 color stripes both available in flat or in the round configuration.

To make the draft stopper, you will need Wool of the Andes Worsted yarn. It is a sturdy and warm worsted weight yarn that is made of 100% Peruvian highland wool. This yarn is great for making sweaters, as well as textured afghans.

Moreover, we recommend you use the mattress stitch to sew up the side of the draft stopper. The mattress stitch is a versatile and invisible seaming technique. It will make your knitting look continuous even if you knitted your piece flat.

We have an illustrated tutorial for the mattress stitch if you want to learn it. You can find the tutorial here: Learn How to Do A Mattress Stitch.
